Art Windsor-Essex respectively acknowledges that we are located on Anishinaabe Territory – the traditional territory of the Three Fires Confederacy of First Nations, comprised of the Ojibway, the Odawa, and the Potawatomi. Today the Anishinaabe of the Three Fires Confederacy are represented by Walpole Island First Nation. We want to state our respect for the historical and ongoing authority of Walpole Island First Nation over its Territory.
Historical Works from the Collection
May 3, 2003 - July 27, 2003
This Summer, the AGW painting and sculpture vaults will become a source for exhibitions related to the history of art in Essex County and throughout Canada itself. We are pleased to present a wide-ranging overview of artworks made during the 19th and early 20th-centuries, including paintings, prints, and sculptures. Many works seen here present eccentric subjects that differ from widely-accepted assumptions about Canadian art and its dependence on the landscape. Another exhibition offers early views of Windsor and the area by artists including Frederick Verner, William C. Braithwaite, and Thomas Roach, as well as items selected from other collections, including Windsor Public Archives.
